Fort Herriman Middle School

Paul Genesse and a student (Alexandra?) at Fort Herriman Middle School in Herriman, Utah

March 19, 2009


Fort Herriman Middle School was really fun. The librarian there, Barbara Hopkins invited me to be part of “Lunch in the Library.”

The kids had pizza while I juggled chainsaws and drank poison. Okay, I couldn’t get the permit to drink the poison, but they let me juggle the chainsaws. Mostly, I just cut the pizza with the chainsaws. Fine. I’m exaggerating a little. I didn’t cut the pizza with said chainsaws.

We did chat about writing and stuff. I got to hang with my buddies, Spencer, Amelia, and Noah, plus lots of other cool kids. I spoke to two different groups during the two lunch breaks at the school.

Spencer had read The Golden Cord twice and I gave him a gift, an advanced reader copy of The Dragon Hunters. A very rare gift indeed.

I hope to return to Fort Herriman Middle School. The place was beautiful and the students were top notch.

Happy Reading,

Paul Genesse
